Talk by Brendan Gregg from Facebook's Performance @Scale: "Linux performance analysis has been the domain of ancient tools and metrics, but that's now changing in the Linux 4.x series. A new tracer is available in the mainline kernel, built from dynamic tracing (kprobes, uprobes) and enhanced BPF (Berkeley Packet Filter). It allows us to measure latency distributions for file system I/O and run queue latency, print details of storage device I/O and TCP retransmits, investigate blocked stack traces and memory leaks, and a whole lot more. These lead to performance wins large and small, especially when instrumenting areas that previously had zero visibility. This talk will summarize this new technology and some long-standing issues that it can solve, and how we intend to use it at Netflix."
